Blue is the new Black!

University of Nevada held their 3rd annual Blue Tie Ball last Friday night.  This evening event was held at the Peppermill’s Tuscany ball room. This event support’s the student athletes at the University of Nevada Reno.  The money raised will go towards their athlete scholarship. 

 This fun event has the student athletes meet and greet all the attendee and perform a dance though the gala. I went to this year last year and it was such a fun event.  This gives the donors, coaches, attendee and the student athletes a chance to get to know each other. 

 So next year mark down on your calendars to attend this wonderful and fun event.  You will not be disappointed.  Help support your University of Nevada Reno student athletes!! Without our help, we would have no Football, basketball, softball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, cheerleading, golf, rifle, or track teams to go and watch.  Our community would have nothing to cheer about!    Attend next year’s Blue Tie Ball!!
